We believe that sometimes some travel professionals place more emphasis, when choosing a property, on lodge facilities and less emphasis on the game experience. We need to remind ourselves that the main reason that people go on safari is for the game experience. Yes, accommodation, food and service are important, the game experience is the single biggest reason why they choose to go on safari.
We have continued to add to our game numbers and believe that the game offering on Lalibela is second to none in the Eastern Cape. We are unique in that we have vast areas of savannah grassland. The high carrying capacity of this biome allows us to sustain truly vast herds of plains game which, in turn, allows us to sustain what we believe is one of the densest populations of free-roaming lion in South Africa. Coupled with herds of buffalo than number in the hundreds, the game experience at Lalibela is actually what sets us apart.
